We stayed for 2 nights and loved it here! Did not want to leave. We had the Wind room overlooking the river and it was beautifully and very tastefully decorated (as was the entire hotel) And very comfortable and quiet too. Getting to the hotel from the train station was easy via a taxi (just over 1000 yen).
Breakfast was western style and amazing! Free drinks during happy hour were fun too.
If you look up in the dictionary the phrase "superb service" you will see a photo of this hotel's staff. Amazing service! The bell boy even ran after us with an umbrella when we were transferring to a nearby ryokan so that we wouldn't get wet in the rain. Unbelievable! We are adding Mume to the short list of our favourite hotels from travels around the world.
